IOC confirms Wembley as Badminton & Gymnastics venue for 2012

wembley arenaThe IOC has confirmed that the Badminton and Gymnastics Federations have agreed to use Wembley Arena for the London Olympics tournament.

The decision has been taking to avoid building an expensive temporary venue, and means athletes will probably need to be accomodated in or near Wembley, as the journey from Stratford would be unnecessarily long.

There is yet one more stage in the confirmation of the decision – the Federations themselves must ratify the agreement at their meetings next week.
